WEST INDIES - IN SPITE of a less than perfect build-up to their series against Pakistan in Dubai, the West Indies players appear to be motivated and geared up for what they expect will be a hard-fought three-match T20 contest.

The series bowls off today at Dubai International Cricket Stadium at 12 noon (Eastern Caribbean Time) with the first of three Twenty20 Internationals and though the visitors are the reigning World T20 champions, they will not be taking anything for granted against one of the more unpredictable sides in world cricket.
